Thank goodness it is Friday! We have had a crazy week back after spring break. But we did have fun learning all about the weather and seasons this week. My classroom was in charge of the school writing board this month, so we wrote about what we like to do in the spring.
We discussed what the weather is like in each season and illustrated what it looks like. I am so happy to see my kinders beginning to add more details to their illustrations. That has been a struggle this year.
The kiddos LOVED reading Little Cloud by Eric Carle. Then they were able to create their own little cloud using a white crayon on blue construction paper. We are going to hang these up for Family Fun Night this year which is Eric Carle themed.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was another hit! They had some great ideas for what it should rain. Some of my favorites included french fries, doughnuts, and giant cookies!
We have been reading informational texts about weather all week. Today we read about storms. Then we conducted a rain experiment. The students made predictions about what they thought would happen when the blue water was put on top of the shaving cream cloud. Some of them thought it was going to make thunder. They were very excited when it started to "rain" in the cup and wanted a close-up look.

Now I'm getting ready for dinosaur week!
